CANTERVILLE GHOST is a musical based on the Oscar Wilde novella by the same name. Set in the 1920s, it is the tale of a young American family moving into a medieval English manor haunted by a fine and respectable ghost of the grand tradition; an expert performer and master of his craft. Unfortunately for the ghost, modern American sensibility leaves little room for such nonsense as haunting. The story maintains the subtle wit and dry humor of the Wilde original, while adding a musical score with more than twenty original songs. It plays liberally with American and British customs, politics, and age-old stereotypes, lambasting both countries to riotous effect.
